La Isla Residences condo description

South Padre Island is one of the finest recreational areas in the world. Our condo at Gulfview I offers all the amenities one could ask for in a one-bedroom condo, including a full kitchen with everything needed to prepare a gourmet meal or reheat a pizza in the microwave.
For those downtime moments away from the beaches, we have large wall-mount TVs with cable service in both the Living room and bedroom that include HBO/Cinemax. New furniture and new tile floor, too. A phone is available for free local calls; long distance can be accessed with a calling card.
The bedroom is spacious and has two full-size beds. All necessary sheets and towels are supplied.
The third-floor porch provides a space to kick back and enjoy the view of the ocean and the jetties. Then take a swim in the Olympic-plus size swimming pool, or enjoy basking in the luxury of one of the two whirlpool spas. Afterward, take a walk on the pristine beach where you can collect some shells, try out your new surfboard, or do some windsurfing.
The Schlitterbahn Water Park is located just across the street.


Activities: Do not worry about parking spaces; just keep your auto at Gulfview I and walk over to buy your ticket and enjoy a fun-filled day of water sports for the entire family at Schlitterbahn. Our manager has DISCOUNTED tickets for Schlitterbahn.
If you are not too exhausted from your day activities, you'll have restaurants, nightclubs, or a cruise on an offshore gambling vessel to choose among at night.
Brownsville is only 30 minutes away, and prides itself on the Gladys Porter Zoo -- one of largest and most comprehensive zoos in the United States. And world-class golfing is located at Laguna Vista, only a few minutes' drive from the Island.
The close proximity to Mexico (45 minutes) provides the vacationer an opportunity to enjoy a south-of-the-border experience. Dine or dance to a Latin beat at Garcia's, or visit the Mercado where you can buy gifts for everyone for only a few pesos.

Pets: Absolutely NO PETS unless the owner agrees to it. Steam Cleaning fee of $150.00 for dogs.

Payment: The owner only takes PAYPAL or might agree to a check or money order if it is mailed overnight. It is not rented until the money is received; other wise, it is available on a first come first serve basis. Condo is not put on hold due to an inquiry. Must book right away or lose out to other waiting customers. I do not log my rentals into the HomeAway website as I simply do not have the time to post or edit rental dates or entry and exit times. Just email me.
